    Best bird photo yet.  Poor thing looks like she might be thinking it would have been better to stay in California.  You’re still gorgeous!  Cue the wind machine…!

    What kind of bird is in the picture?  Baby Blue Jay?

    That’s a California Scrub-jay, a newcomer to Seattle in recent years. I’ve been seeing more of them around West Seattle, where they’re undoubtedly annoying our native Steller’s Jays and other corvids. They sure are gorgeous in spite of all that!

    Lovely little bird. Related question: is there a compilation of all the amazing bird photos that have appeared on the WSB? I’d love to see them all together!

      The birds and sunsets would make for a nice coffee table book.

      that’s a good idea, Susan!

      Most of the bird photos we’ve published in recent months are in galleries you can see in our wildlife-category archive
      The occasional bird photo featured with the daily previews, with this one, are not there, however. The daily previews are all in the “miscellaneous” archive category.
      (If you view our site via desktop/laptop/landscape tablet, which is the optimal way to use it, the category list/links are on the right sidebar.)

    Trileigh. Do you know why there are more of these jay’s in this area?

Sorry, comment time is over.
